How to replace p0420 and p0430 sensors
p0420 and p0430 are codes for bank a and bank b catalyst efficiency below threshold. there are 2 sensors on each bank. you dont say if its a v6 or a v8, if its a v6 they are easy to get at from the underside. one has a green connector the other blue, both sides the same, and screw into the exhaust one before cat one after, if its a v8 there not so easy. the connectors are at the back of the cylinder heads one grey one black. my advise would to get it on to some diagnostic equipment to monitor live data to identify the culprit, you dont get both sides going down together. from my experience with these cars if one bank of cylinders has a emission related problem the ecu uses the other bank to compensate which can confuse diagnostics. also one of or both catalysts may be faulty

How to chang a reverse sencor on a s type jaguar
If the faulty sensor is one of the inner sensors the bumper has to come of. If it is a outer sensor only half the bolts on that side have to be removed. Start by partly removeing the under wing shield and there is access to the bolts,open the boot remove plastic shut trim and more bolts. Pull back side carpets remove the black side plates to get to more bolts remove bumper and replace the faulty sensor leave the bumper connected and pointing away and test before refitting.

What is code po153b for stype jaguar 2002
the code po153 is oxy/lambda sensor slow response. and the b i think relates to bank b that is left hand as you sit in car, there are 2 sensors on each bank. you should really have it put on suitable diagnostic equipment to monitor live data to help sort it out, it could be either sensor or the catalyst. and the parts are expensive so you should not get the diagnosis wrong. i guess you engine light is on. good luck.
